How do I change my method of posting?

  • On my page http://www.dontyouhatewhen.com in order for someone to post they have to sign in with a username and password then they can submit a post. I want something easier such as this local school St. Francis de Sales. This is a blog site that uses WordPress as well and if you see at the bottom the text box is already there to submit a post. Is it something in my settings? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

  • that is just a comment form on that site
    the index.php has been modified to show comment form on front page
    you don’t have to register if you set it up that way
    admin – settings – discussion

    I’m sorry but I don’t see any options like that in the admin – settings – discussion section.

    Look for Comment author must fill out name and e-mail

    Okay that was checked but is now unchecked…..but still looks the same.

    It may, but they don’t have to fill those in now. Try posting without putting info in there 🙂

    If you want to remove it from sight, edit your theme’s comments.php

    if you click on “no comments” you are taken to your comment form here

    This means your theme is only set up for comments on the single.php (single post view) – this is typical behavior.

    If you want the comment form to show up after every post on front page, you will nedd to modify your theme’s index.php.
    You will need to add this line:
    <?php comments_template(); ?>
    right after the code for the_content loop

    After this code?

    <?php the_content(‘Read the rest of this entry »’); ?>

    yes somewhere after that – you may have to experiment some

    just back up the file and you’ll be fine

    Nope, I couldn’t get it to work! Hahaha, man this sucks. Sounds like my personal “don’t you hate when”.

    Any other ideas fellas?

    not really since that should work

    I think there’s a variable you need to set to allow comments on areas they wouldn’t usually be..

    Something like..

    $withcomments = 1;

    I’m sure i remember it being mentioned on a codex page, but can’t for the life of me remember specifically which one..

    I don’t have anything that says “with comment”, but I do have this in there:

    <?php comments_popup_link(‘No Comments »’, ‘1 Comment »’, ‘% Comments »’); ?></p>

    Is that it maybe?

    <?php $withcomments = true; comments_template(); ?>

    or

    <?php $withcomments = 1; comments_template(); ?>

    Same as sam suggested, just a small addition..

    First of all I would like to say thank you all those that have helped. I’m new to all this so I appreciate any help I can get. t31os_, that worked and it put a reply box under EVERY post. Is there a way to just put ONE box and have them to go in as a POST instead of a COMMENT?

    Again any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
